  Article:   THE POSSESSIVE DATIVE IN ROMANIAN FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF RELATIONAL GRAMMAR.

Authors:  ADRIANA TODEA.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  Relational Grammar regards the syntax of the clause as a structure that consists of several levels, from an initial to a final stratum. Thus, a multi-predicate clause, instead of displaying subordonation, may contain distinct predicates in successive strata. This is the monoclausal analysis of predicate unions, which is based on the extension of the domain of chomeurs. In this context, the Romanian Possessive Dative, which expresses the correlation between the final indirect object relation of an argument and its thematic role of possessor, can be interpreted as the inherited possessor of a noun phrase, revalued to the first available position -indirect object- in a nominal union rather than a raised possessor in an ascension.
